More About Cognizin

Cognizin is a branded form of Citicoline, a natural substance found in every cell of the body and especially vital to brain health.* Citicoline is broken down during intestinal absorption and, after passing through the blood/brain barrier, is reconstituted in the brain as citicoline.* Citicoline is a water-soluble compound that supplies precursors for the synthesis of phospholipids, including phosphatidyl- choline, a major constituent of brain tissue*; helps maintain normal levels of acetylcholine, a chemical that regulates memory and cognitive function*; enhances communication between neurons*; supports visual function*; protects neural structures from free radical damage*; enhances metabolism and healthy brain activity*; and helps sustain healthy cellular mitochondria for sustained energy*. Cognizin is also highly stable, GRAS, ultra-pure and allergen-free. For more information on Cognizin, visit
